Bangladesh Malaria Proposal to GFATM

The malaria situation in Bangladesh has worsened in recent years, particularly in the hill tract districts located in remote forested border areas. Health infrastructure in these areas is inadequate and access to health care services is poor. The seasonal influx of nonimmune laborers into these areas further exacerbates malaria transmission. The program supported by this grant aims to scale up and strengthen malaria control activities in Bangladesh. The program’s three major objectives are to provide quality diagnosis and effective treatment to 80 percent of estimated malaria cases in the 13 highly endemic districts by 2012; to promote the use of long-lasting insecticidal nets in 80 percent of households in these districts and to use selective indoor residual spraying for containment of outbreaks. In addition funds will be used to strengthen program management capacity and coordination, as well as partnership in malaria control.
